Fic Post: Trigger

Title: Trigger
Series: Sleeps with Butterflies.
Author: vegawriters
Fandom: CSI
Pairing: Hints of Grissom and Sara
Rating: M for adult themes
Timeframe: Season four: Homebodies
A/N: As has been discussed by many in my circle over the last few months, Sara’s drinking in season four didn’t just come out of nowhere. Nor did her anger in season five. And it was not because Grissom rejected her. We all seem to be in consensus that while the explosion in season 3 was the initial trigger, Homebodies set her off. Thank you to kittyknighton for the beta.
Disclaimer: I won't lie. If CBS were to hire me, I'd take down all the fic faster than you can blink. But since right now I am a struggling writer, it can be understood I don't make a dime from this. I do however enjoy doing it and enjoy exploring character while I do. But, CSI and its characters all belong to the powers that be.

Summary: She could sleep later. Later, after she’d pulled her rain soaked clothes from her body and tossed them into the trash, unable to ever wear them again for fear of bringing that karma back into some other teenager’s life.

Title: The Awkward Intersection of Love and Estrangement
Series: Sleeps with Butterflies
Author: vegawriters
Fandom: CSI
Pairing: Grissom/Sara
Rating: Teen
Timeframe: Takes place around Dead of the Class. (I would like to mention how happy I am that Jorja wasn't in the episode. It fed into my head canon perfectly.)
A/N: Consider this an interlude in this epic storyline. We don’t know where the powers that be are going to take Grissom and Sara. But we do know what they’ve repeated over and over again since the beginning of the season: they love each other; that will never change.
Disclaimer: Someday, I hope to be working in a field where I have to take these stories down because I’m part of the team bringing them to canon life every day. But until then, here you go. CBS and TPTB make all the money from the stories they tell. I just like to play in the shadows. This is for fun, and for heartbreak.

Summary: Yes, this trip was important. She wasn’t wearing her ring although it was never far from her finger. He didn’t comment. He still wore his. She didn’t comment. In fact, they didn’t say a word about the relationship. The baggage sat between them, but somehow they didn’t trip over it. They just let it sit. It wasn’t going anywhere.

Fic: Words Have Consequences

Title: Words Have Consequences
Series: Sleeps with Butterflies
Author: vegawriters
Fandom: CSI
Pairing: Grissom/Sara (angst)
Rating: PG-15. Some references to sex. Lots of language.
Timeframe: Just post Butterflied
A/N: This one is for elucreh and sand_mercury. Because they sat there with me and watched it while I cried. Thank you to kittyknighton for the beta.
Disclaimer: CSI, Sara Sidle, Gil Grissom, et al do not belong to me. But I have enjoyed watching them for the past 13 years and writing fic for the past 8. No, I don’t make any money from these endeavors.

Summary: “Debbie Marlin wasn’t your conscience, Gil. And I’m not here for you to use every time you need to work out your issues. I’m sorry that I’m fifteen years younger than you and that loving me might fuck with your hard won position here in Vegas, but I am who I am and you had absolutely no problem loving that person in San Francisco.”

Fic Post: The Loudest Sound (CSI)

Title: The Loudest Sound
Series: Sleeps with Butterflies
Author: vegawriters
Fandom: CSI
Pairing: Grissom/Sara; touches on Sara’s relationships with Doug and Dan.
Characters: Sara Sidle, Greg Sanders, Laura Sidle, Nick Stokes, DB Russell.
Rating: Mature (For adult themes and some self-love.)
Timeframe: Season 13, post Forget Me Not, before Last Woman Standing.
A/N: I was going to kill Dan off. This is more interesting. Because, honestly, I’m not done with him yet.
Disclaimer: Sara Sidle, Gil Grissom, CSI, and even the Grissom/Sara relationship belong to CSI and the powers that be at CBS. If they belonged to a lot of fans, right now a lot of fans wouldn’t be so upset. I’m going to use this disclaimer to say that I have faith, misplaced as it might be, in the writers. I’m also going to use it to say that I don’t make a penny off of this work that I do.

Summary: Hell was a place on earth.

The Loudest SoundCollapse )

Fic: Under the X-Ray

Title: Under the X-Ray
Series: Sleeps with Butterflies
Author: vegawriters
Fandom: CSI
Pairing: Grissom/Sara; Sara/Doug
Timeframe: Takes place post Unfriendly Skies and through Sex, Lies, and Larvae
Rating: Mature
A/N: This one has been keeping me up nights. Hopefully with it being finished and posted, I'll be able to sleep again.
Disclaimer: Gil Grissom, Sara Sidle, Doug Wilson, and all of CSI are part of the collective possessions of the powers that be at CBS. I do not make any money off of this.

Summary: Do you want to sleep with me?

Under the X-RayCollapse )

Fic Post: Worth Coming Home To?

Title: Worth Coming Home To?
Series: Sleeps with Butterflies
Author: vegawriters
Pairing: Grissom/Sara
Rating: Teen
Timeframe: Post Forget Me Not The title of this fic comes from the song the series is named for: Sleeps With Butterflies by Tori Amos.
Disclaimer: Sara Sidle, Gil Grissom, CSI, and even the Grissom/Sara relationship belong to CSI and the powers that be at CBS. If they belonged to a lot of fans, right now a lot of fans wouldn’t be so upset. I’m going to use this disclaimer to say that I have faith, misplaced as it might be, in the writers. I’m also going to use it to say that I don’t make a penny off of this work that I do.

Summary: Funny, how such a silly little connection, a silly little trinket, could mean everything.

Fic Post: Lost Choices (CSI)

Title: Lost Choices
Series: Sleeps with Butterflies
Author: vegawriters
Fandom: CSI
Pairing: Grissom/Sara
Timeframe: Season 6.
Rating: Mature
A/N: This is part of the Sleeps With Butterflies series and holds all of the warnings associated with this storyline.
Disclaimer: CSI is owned by CBS, et al. I have no say in any of it. I do not make any money off of the stories in this series. Josh, Angela, and Elise Mair are my creations, as is Derrick Flemming.

Summary: She was in the hospital, screaming while her body protested labor and even while her body bled from the damage inflicted on it and the doctors raced to stitch her up, she’d begged futilely for a chance to see her child just once. Just once.

In 1996, Gil Grissom presented at a forensic academy conference in San Francisco. Sitting on the front row, her hair up in a ponytail, was Sara Sidle. They couldn’t take their eyes off each other. The question is, what happened next?

Fic Post: If Only You’d Asked Me

Title: If Only You’d Asked Me
Series: Sleeps with Butterflies
Author: vegawriters
Fandom: CSI
Pairing: Grissom/Sara
Rating: Teen
A/N: This is inspired by what’s come out over the last couple of days. Most notably Shane Saunders tweets and this article blurb: http://jorjafox.net/2013/gsr-faces-the-music/. Is based on the shot of Sara sitting alone in the restaurant. The title comes from Amanda Palmer's The Bed Song, which is highlighted below.
Disclaimer: CSI was and is one of the best written shows on TV. It kills me that ratings are down and people aren’t seeing what wonderful creations are coming out of the stories being told. This season especially has inspired me to write. What’s wrong in that? I also make no money off of what I write. I do hope that someday, however, I can tell the writers what they’ve meant to me. Money-wise, CSI belongs to CBS and the powers that be. The characters belong to us, the fans.

Summary: Maybe what they had was a moment in time and they’ve passed along each other, but instead of ships in the night, it’s the Titanic and the ice berg and her heart was left sinking into icy waters.

If Only You'd Asked MeCollapse )
Title: A Meeting After Lunch
Series: Silent Legacy
By: vegawriters
Fandom: The West Wing
Pairing: CJ Cregg/Gina Toscano
Rating: Teen. Alas, no porn in this.
Timeframe: Six Meetings Before Lunch
Original Note: This was initially written for simplekndofgirl who, for the record, I adore. Her friendship came out of nowhere and at a perfect time. I am also so very glad that I got her hooked onto West Wing because now she loves CJ. See how easy life is when everyone just does what I tell them to? And yes, simplekndofgirl, you will notice that there is an overlying title to this. This will be at least a mini-series. Consider this little tidbit a photograph of CJ and Gina’s life. Eventually, there will be a whole scrapbook to look through.
New Note: This was dragged up out of the abyss of the internet thanks to a post from thescurfofworse on tumblr.
Disclaimer: Sadly, CJ and Gina are not mine. I do wish they were. But, if they were, they would still be beyond my control because The West Wing is sadly long gone. I do not make money for this, but I do have fun playing with them.

Summary: “First you patronize me down on my turf by reminding me that you’re the Press Secretary and then you bring up your ex-girlfriend? Are you really trying to piss me off? I can handle you throwing your job around but Brenda makes me want to hit the practice range with a picture of her on the target.”
